Zimmerman Spring 2014

I’m in the mood to post some pics from my new favorite designer for Spring.  Check out these images from Zimmerman’s Spring runway presentation.  This Australian label, known mostly for it’s innovative and stylish swimwear, made it’s New York Fashion Week debut back in September.  I cannot wait for this collection to hit the stores.  Here are my favorite looks from the show…

Swimsuits Now~ Retro Fit, Modern Print

One Piece Swimsuit We Are Handsome(photo: wearehandsome.com)

My family and I just returned from a very relaxing pool-side vacation, so naturally I have swimwear on the brain.  If you haven’t already done so, now is the time to dive into a new one-piece swimsuit.  The trend has swept the runways and fashion-minded women are embracing this fun, yet sophisticated style.  While I love the retro-inspired one-piece numbers shown all over the runways, I don’t want to look like I just popped out of a vintage Florida post card.  I’m looking for something a bit more subtle.  These printed versions bring a modern vibe to the classic swimsuit style…
